Drive-Thru Access Control Using Face Recognition Technology

Saudi Arabia | King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

Most visitors drive cars to enter the KAUST premises. Before deploying drive-thru access control using face recognition, security staff had to check if they were indeed authorized before manually opening the access point. The system was both inconvenient and time-consuming.

In the case study, you will learn how Innovatrics SmartFace Platform has significantly improved security and reduced waiting times with a face recognition access control system that allows a drive-thru-like experience without the need for visitors to step out of their vehicle.

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), a prestigious graduate research university of science and technology founded in 2009, is home to a population of more than 7,000 international students, faculty staff, and their family members from over 116 countries. It is a catalyst for innovation, economic development, and social prosperity in Saudi Arabia and the world.
